The attacks to which you refer applies to the Jackbooted Big Brother. A person soft on terror wouldn’t be using such resources to kill those he wishes to ‘protect’. Also, Big Brother, the tyranical gov’t portrayed in G. Orwell’s 1984, was fighting against pronouns. The enemy was “Them”, and “They”. And if you look at the number of Americans killed by firearms, work place accidents, and suicide caused by a lack of mental health care, you will see that many Americans also don’t care when US citizens die. However, cause them to have to pay more money for something and you’ll see them get very upset.You ask a valid question, Lichten. I wish I had rational answer.Respectfully,C.
